I got this as part of the million things I'm having to buy for my new start up business. One thing I needed was a tripod system that worked with my phone to take pictures of products with.
So far over a month later this is 100% living up to my expectations. The Tripod is light and compacts nicely. It comes with a carrying case, which is actually great. Plus the biggest bonus for me is that it fits my phone, Pixel 2 XL and my phone has a chunky extended battery case, I was VERY happy it fit with my phone, as I was ready to buy a different phone mount, knowing my phone is far from the standard size.
We've used it for other things as well, such as recording videos outside with my son. I'm really happy with this one!
